The lake house that turned out to be a snake house

Linda was looking for a summer house in the countryside. In my opinion, this was the best house. Picturesque, far out in the countryside, yet close to other people.

This house was very picturesque but a little too lonely for my liking.

Finally Linda fell for this little cottage right on the shore of a lake.

The cottage was bought.

The cottage was furnished.

The cottage should be inaugurated with a weekend living.

On Saturday morning we discovered that the plot was full of vipers. Even indoors, we found a snake.

Linda never returned to that cottage...

MALMÖ. None of the houses are more than 200 hundred years old but the street has been there for 800 years.  The street has seen houses being built, torn down and new houses being built up again. Not to mention all the people who has lived on this street during these times.

That Malmö street has a lot of stories to tell.
